This past weekend, Chestnut Hill was transformed into the world of Harry Potter, as adults and children, wizards and muggles flooded downtown for a Quidditch tournament, straw maze, wizarding classes, a 5k, pub crawl and tons of children’s activities, most of which were free.

The annual Harry Potter weekend has become quite a celebration and Elfant Wissahickon was proud to have sponsored this year’s Knight Bus Trolley, which transported festival goers around town all weekend. Read more about the annual festival HERE
